Over the last 10+ years or so I (John F Croston III) have given many accessibility presentations at a lot of different events. The following are the main talks I have presented.
- “Is Your Website Accessible” - If Not Practical Ways to Make Them So.
- Food version - “Is Your Website Accessible” - If Not Practical Ways to Make Them So.
- Creating an Accessibility Community and Keeping it Going (CSUN 2018)
- Improve Accessibility with Performance Tuning - Page Weight Matters
- Simple Accessibility testing
My Places to Eat
My friends ask me a lot where to eat since I’m always talking about the unusual little inexpensive and out of the way places to eat. So I created a website I call jfc iii ate here where I list all the cities, states, and locations of restaurants I have been that a found interesting that have great food. Sometimes it’s only one dish or dessert or the whole menu. Restaurants with an asterisk after their name are ones I’m looking to get too next time I’m in that location.
General Website Information
You have found your way to the website of John F Croston III, a web developer and accessibility advocate from the Washington, DC area.
Right now, the website is nothing fancy, all created with only HTML and CSS, which is now responsive (no time for my own website) for those of you using mobile, tablet, or desktop/laptop devices.
Being an old school developer, you will find I have used vCard Microformats on the home page along with the jfc iii ate here pages.
My blog is full of posts on what I’m up to, be it accessibility, food, travel, along with things I have created or learned, and any other web related items I might have or find. You will probably find a bunch of things related to food too.
I enjoy web development a great deal and to accomplish my daily job; I use some of the following languages, processes, and skills.
- Section 508
- WCAG 2.0
- Screen readers
- Web Standards
- Validators for HTML, CSS, Links, etc.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, great wine, running Accessibility DC, photography, hiking, and a lot more. Most of the books I read nowadays are mostly technical and related to the web, web standards, accessibility, development, user experience, and design.
Here you will find my resume in a shorter version with my web background or the full version with everything I have done in Word format for now. Need to make some updates and then recreate a PDF version.
